Best Water Bottles for Hiking in 2023

Water Bottles

There’s nothing better than taking a hike across nature and seeing everything that it has to offer, but it’s also important to remember to stay hydrated! When you’re trekking through mountains and forests under the scorching sun, it’s important to make sure that your body has enough water to keep moving.

Many of us might have never thought about our water bottles and believe that any water bottle will do, but this isn’t true. Here are some recommendations for water bottles, as well as a few things to look out for when looking for one to take with you on your next hike!

Factors to Consider


While a high quality water bottle will obviously cost more than the usual plastic bottle you can quickly buy in any supermarket, a higher price doesn’t automatically mean a better water bottle. When buying a water bottle, you should make sure that the price you’re paying is justifiable and that the water bottle is actually worth the money.

Some water bottles are much more expensive but are more convenient and durable, while others might just be charging higher prices for the brand name without any additional features to back it up.


In case you’re looking for one water bottle that can do it all, you can choose one that comes with a few accessories that lets your water bottle also store your morning coffee, as well as become a tumbler for your wine or alcohol. The most popular accessory that lets a reusable bottle become more than a water bottle is a different mouth or cap, so watch out for that. 


When you’ve reached the midpoint of your hike and are sweating bullets, the last thing you want to drink when you’re incredibly dehydrated is warm water. This is also why getting a regular plastic bottle from your local grocery store isn’t advisable, along with the fact that excessive exposure to heat might compromise the plastic material and affect your water.

It’s better to look for an insulated bottle that is not only built to withstand extreme temperatures—whether hot or cold—but also to keep and maintain the cool temperature of your water. 


When you’re hiking outside, you don’t want your water bottle to be an additional weight you have to carry, which is why you should stay away from heavier bottles and stick to those that are much easier to bring around with you.

List of Recommendations

Hydro Flask Standard Mouth

This water bottle is made of the brand’s trademark TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation to keep your water cool for hours, while also making sure that the temperature of your beverage stays completely inside. The bottle is also made of incredibly durable food grade 18/8 stainless steel material, which is BPA-free and very resistant to bacteria and foul odors.

The narrow design of this model also makes it very easy to bring around by hand or in cup holders. And with the 24 fl.oz. volume, you’ll definitely get the hydration you need to stay cool and refreshed without having to carry around a heavy bottle. You can also buy a Sports Cap to make it a great exercise bottle.

GSI Outdoors Microlite 720 Water Bottle

The double-wall vacuum insulation of this bottle ensures that your drink stays in your preferred temperature, and the long-lastic 18/8 stainless steel that it’s made of also promises to keep your drink safe from external contaminants. Another great thing is that they have the ECO Design Label, which means that the bottle was designed for sustainability.

It’s also 25% more compact and weighs a third less than other vacuum bottles of the same size, making it great for chucking in your backpack for a hike. The easy flip-top cap also makes it easy to drink without having to worry about any accidental spills, but it also comes in another version with a regular twist cap.

Takeya Actives Insulated Stainless Water Bottle

With 320z, this bottle will definitely keep you adequately hydrated throughout your hike, while also keeping you cool with the double-wall vacuum insulation keeping your drink cold for up to 24 hours. It also comes with an innovative insulated spout lid that’s leakproof and allows for easy single-handed drinking with its hinge lock.

YETI Rambler Vacuum Bottle 

This 36 fl.oz. bottle has all your hydration needs covered. It’s 100% leak proof, which means that you can throw it into your bag without having to worry about any leaks, and it also comes with a 2-part cap topped with the company’s trademark TripleHaul handle so that you can easily grab the bottle and bring it with you anywhere.

Hydro Flask Lightweight Wide-Mouth Vacuum Water Bottle

Despite it having more tapered and thinner walls, it doesn’t mean that this water bottle is in any way less durable or insulated. In fact, it has a thicker bottom to ensure durability and can keep cool liquids for up to 24 hours with its stainless steel material, while also being 25% lighter than its non-lightweight counterpart. 

This makes it a great bottle for hikers who want a lighter bottle without sacrificing the coolness of their drinks.
